All Charity wants to do is look after her fiancée whereas Vanessa just wants to get on with things such as going to work before her operation.
Next week Vanessa is in pain and while Charity does mean well and tries her best to comfort Vanessa she’s left feeling useless. The problem with secrets escpially in soap is they often get blurted out at the worst possible moment and that for Tracy comes as Charity walks in a surprise party thrown for Vanessa.
Charity knows, but nobody else does, it isn’t what Vanessa needs at the moment and drags Tracy outside but when Tracy refuses to abandon the party Charity can’t hold it any more and blurts out that Vanessa has cancer which leaves Tracy floored. Unfortunately it is too little too late and as ‘surprise’ can be heard from inside the party Vanessa’s brave facade falls as it dawns on her what Charity has just done.
Tracy storms off but a worried Charity hangs back and as Vanessa opens up to Tracy it leaves Charity feeling sidelined and under the impression she is being shut out. Tracy and Charity are short with each other and things between the pair reach breaking point.
This is the last thing Vanessa wants or needs right now but can her sister and her partner build bridges right when needed the most.
